Smart Clinical Trial solution introduction

Optimising clinical trial lifecycle to enable faster drug development

HCLTech’s Smart Clinical Trial (SCT) solution by HCLTech aims to make clinical trials smarter, faster, and more optimized by accelerating the discovery-to-market journey for a drug.

Pharmaceutical companies continually look at adopting faster and effective drug-development models to address competition, consolidation, effective safety-monitoring and management of patient recruitment and retention issues during trials. This healthcare solution allows all stakeholders involved in the clinical trial management system for a drug. They can leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and perform ‘day-to-day’ safety monitoring of the patients participating in the trial/program, thereby boosting protocol adherence and REMS compliance.

This helps in the early identification of trends/patterns contributing to the enhancement in decision-making capabilities for the trial’s outcome, and save time, effort, and capital for the companies. By enabling e-visits through various smart devices to capture vital signs and e-diary data of trial subjects apart from scheduled visits, the solution helps an investigator/clinician to view patient data in real-time by leveraging the smart ‘Patient Portal.’ It also provides safety monitoring and care through multi-disciplinary teams, effectively and immediately. Thus the clinical trial solution helps improve patient safety, faster completion, and compliance with regulatory demands.

Clinical Trial Solution

SCT Features

Transforming business into next-gen enterprises with industry leading solutions and capabilities



Vital signs and e-diary data of study subjects, or patients is collected through smartphone/tablet/Mi-Fi, and smart biometric devices continually between scheduled EDC physical visits


Real-time feedback generation

The smart ‘Patient Portal’ interprets the reading and sends pre-programmable feedback to study subjects


Real-time alerts

An investigator/clinician gets an alert on any abnormal reading to provide safety monitoring and care, effectively and in real-time


Secure, accurate, and complete data recording

Vital signs and e-diary data of the study on the subjects are recorded securely without any human error. They can be sent to the sponsor to be loaded in CDMS or EMR as per extraction protocol
